National Committee of Transport Engineering - 30 August - Parramatta
Getting bang for your buck: designing, funding and maximising the use of footpath and cycleway infrastructure.
Walking is part of nearly every trip. Both walking and cycling are relatively inexpensive to do and provide health, environmental and decongestion benefits. State and local transport agencies hope walking and cycling will help lower traffic congestion and create healthy, sustainable communities.
This session brings together a panel of 4 practitioners to address the strategy, funding, design and operations of walking and cycling infrastructure. Spaces are limited – register early to ensure a seat.
